Syria and Russia were both on site at first why have not they produced intelligence data proving the West or factions supported by the West were responsible for the attack
Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vassily Nebenzia votes against US resolution to create an investigation of the use of weapons in Syria, at United Nations Headquarters in New York. On April 10, 2018
UNITED NATIONS (AFP) — Russia on Tuesday vetoed a US-drafted United Nations Security Council resolution that would have set up an investigation into chemical weapons use in Syria following an alleged toxic gas attack in rebel-held Douma.
It was the 12th time that Russia has used its veto power at the council to block action targeting its Syrian ally.
We are using the veto in order to protect international rule of law, peace and security, to make sure that you do not drag the Security Council into your adventures,” Nebenzia said.
US Ambassador Nikki Haley shot back, saying “Russia has trashed the credibility of the council.”
“Whenever we propose anything meaningful on Syria, Russia vetoes it. It is a travesty,” she said.
Twelve of the 15 council members backed the US-drafted measure. Bolivia voted against it alongside Russia, while China abstained.
According to Alexander Rodionov, head of Russia’s radiological, chemical and biological military in Syria, the results of examination showed no traces of chemical weapons being used in the area.
“During the visit to the hospital, it was determined that there were no victims with poisoning symptoms of chemical substances such as sarin and chlorine in the hospital”, said Rodionov.
